Cricket Stat Watch

***Che Pujara has passed 50 nine times in his Test career. In three of those knocks he has gone on to reach at least 150, and he has failed to reach a ton on just three of those occasions.***

***Shivnarine Chanderpaul took 31 innings to register his first Test ton. In his last 31 innings to date, he has six centuries to his name.***

***The side losing the toss has failed to win a single Ashes Test out of the eight played in this 2013-14 marathon-athon. Out of five Tests in the Ashes’ Down Under in 2010-11, the loser of the toss won the match three times (x2 England, x1 Australia).***

***Ross Taylor averages a century every 4.75 Test dismissals when playing in New Zealand. Abroad he averages a ton every 16.33 dismissals.***

***Tim Bresnan won his first 13 Test Matches, a record only bettered by Adam Gilchrist. In the 9 Tests he has played since, he has won 3, drawn 3 and lost 3.***
